Try looking on craigslist if you've got a little bit of time before you need it. :) I found two on there yesterday, but was a day too late to purchase...dangit! ;)

But, craigslist often has good prices on heaters, filters, and tanks, just look around. :)

Anubias and java fern both have the advantage of not even needing substrate - it's easier to simply tie them to something. :) If you do plant them in the gravel, you have to be super careful not to bury the rhizome, or the plant will die (which is why I never plant them because I can never tell if I have buried it or not.

I love java fern. Attached is a picture of my tank, which is absolutely overgrown with the stuff. All of it is either tied to driftwood or growing out of other bits of fern. I do nothing to help it. As you can see, it's super easy. :) There is some anubias in there too, but I suspect it's under the java fern, just like everything else.

Sorry, no pictures yet...
I had company over the weekend and I need to modify the fish stand a bit so I didn't get a chance to set up the tank.

I do have another question though. I've been thinking about maybe getting a nerite snail for the tank once I find out how agressive my betta is. I have a small space between the hood and filter and was wondering if the snail could escape?

Also, where do you guys prefer for bettas? Petsmart or Petco?
